And, already holding the title for the highest grossing tour of any solo act of all time, Madge is on pace to outdo herself for the 3rd time. Possibly landing in the No.3 spot for highest grossing tours of all time for any act, it should be noted that the Material Girl has consistently played less shows than the two acts ranking above her while pulling in similar figures.
In related news, Madonna has scrapped plans to tour Australia for the first time in 20 years. Live Nation confirmed late Tuesday that the "MDNA" tour will wrap in South America in December. "That's all we can say," a spokesperson said, according to BBC News.
It was confirmed in February that Madonna would bring her tour to Australia in early 2013, however no hard dates have been announced. According to Australian media reports, stadiums in major cities including Sydney and Melbourne had already been booked, though that can't be confirmed.
